[Awnings of Hollywood Inc.] Hollywood, Fla., U.S.A.
An Awnings of Hollywood client wanted a combination entry and dining canopy for his beachfront restaurant that would stand out on the Hollywood, Fla., beach boardwalk, accent the ocean environment and add cachet to the building. The company devised an attractive blue wave design and a structure system that addressed the difficulty associated with attaching it to the building. The system meets the 170 mph wind load requirement of the current building code, but also allows for removing it in the event of a hurricane. The fairly complicated cover fit perfectly when it was installed.
